Right, so today’s recommendations come from my best friend Helen.
Helen is a very no fuss girl who likes beauty rituals with products that do the job. She loves natural products and has a very simple approach with her make up routine too, hence why she hasn’t really recommended any make up!
Here are Helen’s top 5 MUST HAVE products:
1) Avene Facial Sun cream
She said this is so good she uses it at night time sometimes. She’s quite into her Avene products and you can view the range at Boots.
2)ID Bare Minerals Bare Escentuals mineral foundation
We both love this product! Helen doesn’t use liquid foundation so this mineral powder is perfect for her as it’s natural and easy for her to apply.
3)Neal’s Yard Frankincense Night Cream
She swears by this and adores the scent of this cream. In fact she raved about this so much that I am going to invest in one and will write a review about it soon.
4)Jason’s Cocoa Butter body lotion
You can buy Jason’s from most health food stores (Whole Foods in Kensington have a good range!). I bought the spiced apple one at xmas and this stuff really does sink into the skin wonderfully. This is like grade B catnip for her husband with Lush’s Potion being his favourite lotion scent of choice.
5)Liz Earle Cleanse & Polish
A creamy natural cleanser that removes even waterproof mascara! Comes with a muslin cloth to really cleanse the skin of impurities.
I used this a few years ago and really liked it too.
I think next time I shall be asking my friend Clyde how he styles his hair. I know GHDs are involved and his hair does look pretty impressive so I shall bug him for his top tips. Always good to get a boys option on products too!
